Another group of great missionaries go out to join the "Member Missionary Force," and what a force they will be. We know because they changed lives and blessed all of us with their faith and testimonies. We are missing pictures of Elder Hansen and Hadley because we had the pleasure of having their parents come pick them up. It is always so fun to meet the families of our missionaries and tell them first hand how much we love their sons. Thank you and we will miss you.
Nothing like breaking your arm and having surgery two weeks before you go home. We had a wonderful ward mission leader that took care of Elder Skidmore in his home the first week so his companion could work with the zone leaders to keep the work moving forward. I never heard one word of complaint from Elder Skidmore. He was full steam the last week, pink cast and all.
This was a group hug after tender expressions of love and brotherhood. Along with drawing closer to their Savior, these young men form a bond of brotherhood in joining their faith, hearts, and testimonies in the cause of Jesus Christ.
